A Return to Full Skies at Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport

May 11, 2021

As more travelers continue to return to the skies, SkyWest Airlines is restoring twice daily United Airlines service to Denver International Airport on May 27. With the resumption of twice daily service from Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport, all temporarily paused routes at RKS due to COVID-19 have returned.

“This is great news for our entire region,” said Airport Director Devon Brubaker. “We are grateful for our partnership with SkyWest Airlines and the Wyoming Department of Transportation that has allowed air service to remain in place throughout the pandemic. This partnership allowed for rapid adjustments to flight schedules as passenger numbers plummeted to record lows in 2020 and is allowing for the proactive resumption of service as our customers return to the skies.”

The announcement of the resumption of service coincides with RKS seeing an increasing number of daily passengers both at RKS and across the domestic air transportation system. “We are ready to offer our customers an easy, convenient, and safe travel experience as they resume travel wherever and whenever they are ready.”
